Hatchet Herald Exclusive: PAYING TRIBUTE TO THE PAST

For years the Insane Clown Posse have been leaving their mark on the music industry. They’ve managed the impossible feat of being the Most Hated Band in The World, while at the same time having a legion of dedicated Juggalos that call them family.

While the Insane Clown Posse have always been more than happy to hang with said family below the streets in the underground scene, lately it seems the mainstream have been paying a lot more attention to the wicked clowns. Parodies, news articles, television segments, discussions on various radio shows are now springing up everywhere.

But no matter who says what about the Insane Clown Posse, there is one important thing to remember. They’ll never forget their roots. They’ll never forget what helped get them to this point. They now have the ability to reach their Juggalo family all across the world and it’s not something they take lightly.

In homage of the past that pushed them to where they are the Insane Clown Posse have gathered the songs they feel led them along the path of the Dark Carnival and into the lives of so many Juggalos. Those songs are being released as ICP The Old Shit.

We all know that those old school Insane Clown Posse joints are timeless. They’re off the hook masterpieces that you can listen to over and over again. But this is more than just a fucking amazing CD that you can pop in and put on repeat for hours. Though, don’t get it twisted, it is that, too.

This is a CD that looks back on the roots of the Insane Clown Posse and where they came from. Songs handpicked by Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope that they feel are some of the best jams they have to offer.

Now, unfortunately, when it comes to the past of the Insane Clown Posse, or the Insane Clown Posse in general, there are a lot of stores that just don’t want anything to do with it. They’re too scared. The clowns are just a little too real for them and lay it out a little too hard.

So, instead of holding back the Insane Clown Posse said, Fuck That! We’ll do this strictly for our people! Because of that ICP The Old Shit will only be available on hatchetgear.com or on The Happy Daze Tour. Honestly? We couldn’t think of a better way to get it.

Imagine sitting in a huge venue surrounded by thousands of Juggalos you’ve never met before, but have a strong connection with that no one on the outside would understand. You got some Necro! Kittie! Coolie! Kottonmouth Kings! And then the Don Megas themselves, the Insane Clown Posse throwing it down and being bigger than life on stage.

Then you get to walk out of that bitch, soaked in Faygo, your mind reeling from the sheer epic nature of what you just witnessed, and in your hand you hold history. ICP The Old Shit. And you bump that shit so hard in your car that the bass is shakin’ the concrete.

If that’s not a good time then we don’t know what is. So, if you hit up the nationwide Happy Daze Tour don’t forget to scoop your very own copy of ICP The Old Shit which will be available on the road and on hatchetgear.com May 14th!

It’s the Insane Clown Posse! Remember the past. Revel in the present. And keep your eyes on the future, because big shit is happening!
